The Child Rescue Coalition aims to “protect innocence through technology” and the organization has protected thousands of children this year alone. Check out some of these cool stats:
  • 2,766 Children Rescued
  • 12,029 Predators Arrested
  • 96 Countries Worldwide
  • 500,000 Cases of Abuse Prevented

The Child Protection System (CPS) Technology provides the most comprehensive view of where child predators around the world are downloading and sharing explicit content online.

They work around the clock to collect and index 30 to 50 million reports of online users trading child pornography every day. This information allows us to expose hidden networks of abusers and report their activity.

Data is provided to local law enforcement agencies free of charge to help them protect children by tracking, arresting and prosecuting child predators worldwide — often without having to put children through the trauma of testifying in court.
